another reason why xbox > ps3

fios can now stream on your xbox...if you already have an account of course

i've been looking for a wireless device to stream hd stuff in other rooms in the house and everything out there you had to subscribe to some stupid plan. With this new feature from xbox/fios, i can watch hd tv wirelessly anywhere in my house....another thumbs up on xbox

I have both systems, so Im not trying to promote a bickering match over which system is better.


However, I don't have fios, I have TWC and I can stream tv to my iPad and my android tablet wirelessly and take that anywhere in my place. Mind you, I dont have a huge house, so I rarely use my iPad/tablet for watching tv, but I could. Perks of the service. I didn't need my Xbox to do that.

True, speaking from a purely subjective standpoint.

I don't think one's better than the other in a general sense. They both have their strengths and weaknesses.

It was a rhetorical question. And sarcastic in nature.

Having both, I prefer PS3. I've had a 360 for close to 6 years now, shortly after it was released. I've had the PS3 only a year. Maybe its because I still have my original Xbox, but obviously, the graphics are better on my PS3...

Never had an Xbox. I heard a rumor that you have to pay to game online?

have both, xbox is new one and I prefer the ps3. Ps3 controler is much better and more comfortable. Menus are much better in ps3 as well..notice that xbox changed to the ribbon style of menu! I pretty much bought the xbox because pretty much all my friends have one and not the ps3 & Forza rocks!

That has to be the #1 reason at least 60% of people get one. Sony should listen and hand out PS3's to every 3rd person for free. Nip this in the bud completely.

Used my 360 for splinter cell. No more SC no more 360 usage. Does anyone know right off from here if the g25 will work for forza and 360.

Oh... And just for the lulz...

I have both. So no bias here. I like my PS3, The controller isn't as big and feels better in my hands. (IMO)

I also don't use any of the "wave you hands" around games, so kinect or move have no value to me.

I do watch Blue Ray movies when my GF rents a movie at red box so thats nice.

I only play online and its completely free which is nice, XBOX has to pay the monthly fee + MW3 "elite" fee.

I only have 1 tv hooked up in my house so multiple tv's are useless.

I rather have my Ps3 then Xbox just because I use it more.

i have both and the xbox controller is way better, ps3 is smaller and feels good in your hands, but when you're moving the mini joystick and pulling the triggers, xbox is more solid and precise.
not going to argue about graphics cuz some ps3 graphics are better but same goes for xbox.

yes, you get free online on ps3 but xbl is better on online play

again, everything is imo and its just great that xbox now can stream your fios account tv

Have both, Xbox controller wins hands down. It's okay to prefer the PS3 one tho... easier on your little-girl hands.

I like both equally. of course their are minimal pro and cons to both depending on game, graphics, controller, etc.

I was rather upset to learn that you have to pay for xbl to use Netflix on the 360. that's bullsh**. I really can't imagine watching through xbl makes Netflix any better.

The G25 and G27 are not compatible with the 360.

PS3 is a great media device, but it just doesn't "feel" right when it comes to gaming.
